January 16, 1999

Washington County residents who haven't shoveled the ice, snow or slush off their driveways or parking spaces yet can relax.

Mother Nature is expected to do it for you during the next few days.

Temperatures are expected to reach the upper 40s and even mid-50s for at least five days, starting today, according to the National Weather Service.

Today is expected to be mostly sunny with highs in the upper 40s, said meteorologist Jim Decarufel.

Sunday will be partly sunny with highs in the low to mid-50s, according to the forecast.

It will remain mild with temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s through Wednesday, he said. There is a chance of showers on Monday.

Flooding problems are not expected, according to the weather service.

Hagerstown received .46 inches of precipitation on Friday, according to local weather observer Greg Keefer.

Sleet changed to freezing rain and then to rain and finally snow on Friday morning.
